    Contributed to it, definitely. I've got contributions to my hearing loss and occasional ear ringing from a pair of .357 magnums over the years.

    First one I ever shot was probably my dads Ruger MK1 when I was around 6 or 7, first one I ever bought was a .45 Gold Cup in about '78.

    First I ever shot was a Stallard JS9 (before they became Hi-Point) 9mm. Dad said he couldn't pass up a $150 9mm.

    First I ever bought was a Beretta 92FS, at the first gun show local in my area following my 21st birthday.

    Can't remember which type of handgun was first tried out.

    My first acquired handgun was the superb Sauer 38H, bought in 2013. Still have it, excellent ergos in slender hands.

    The first auto loader I shot was my dad's Walther PPK/S in 380 ACP. The first auto loader I purchased was a Beretta 92FS, that was in 1993 and I still have it!

    I purchased a Springfield 1911 GI in .45ACP, but traded it before I ever even fired it. The first I actually fired was a 92FS.

    I bought a S&W Model 59 double stack 9mm about 30 years ago. Hated it right away, but kept it a few months. I happily traded it in on a Colt Series 70 1911 which I carry today. I never touched a 9mm again until I recently bought a Walther P4. A single stack that I do like.
